Poll: Trump Pulls ThisClose In One Point Race!

Joe Biden’s lost ground since the close of the Democratic National Convention, and he and President Trump are now running neck-and-neck in the latest Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey.
The new national telephone and online survey finds Biden with 46% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Trump’s 45%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, while four percent (4%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) So, this is now a one point race!

Please remember that Rasumussen was one of the only polls to correctly call the 2016 election.  Also, this is a poll of LIKELY voters rather than registered voters -- a much more accurate read.
A week ago, Biden led by four points – 48% to 44%. The former vice president has bested Trump in every weekly survey to date, but this week’s 46% is his lowest level of support in any survey. The president has never earned more than 45% of the vote. It remains to be seen if he gets any kind of bounce from the ongoing Republican National Convention.The new survey finds Biden with 76% of the Democratic vote. Trump has the support of 77% of Republicans. The candidates are tied among voters not affiliated with either major political party.

White House Watch will be posted at noon Eastern every Wednesday until Labor Day. The matchup will be posted daily Monday through Friday from Labor Day until Election Day, Tuesday, November 3.
